Clarence Park is located in the heart of the city of St Albans, between the mainline railway and Hatfield Road. It is owned by St Albans City and District Council. The Park occupies an Clarence Park, Park Keepers Lodge Circa 2006area of approximately 10 hectares (25 acres) and, like the original park layout, is still divided into two distinct compartments.

The formal park covers an area of approximately 3.6 hectares (9 acres) and includes a wide range of features that still exist from the original park.  These include rose and flower beds, extensive tree and shrub planting, the Aberdeen granite drinking fountain and the park-keeper's lodge. Only the wood and heather thatched bandstand have been lost from the original park.

The recreation ground compartment, which covers an area of approximately 6.4 hectares (16 acres), is still in extensive use and provides a number of sports facilities such as Cricket, Football, Tennis, Bowls and Hockey.

In 2005 Clarence Park was successfully awarded a Green Flag on its first attempt, and has retained the award every subsequent year to date. The park also received a Green Heritage award in 2007 .
